Why are you pursuing a higher education: I am very ambitious, and I want to never stop learning. 


Why did you choose SLCC: It was affordable and because of the small classroom sizes. Teachers actually get to know you, and it is a great way to step into “college life”. 


What motivates you or inspires you: My single mother - I have seen how she worked to raise my brother and me. I want to make her proud of her sacrifices she made. 


Important life and/or career lessons: Work hard and don’t give up. In life, there are many roadblocks like family issues, relationship issues or friendship. But, never give up on the thing you value the most, which for me was education. I never put that aside for anyone. Till this day, it has never left my side. 


Best advice you have been given or that you give others: I would say focus on yourself and love yourself. I learned that later in life, but also make good friends who bring the best out in you. 


Family: One younger brother and a mom.


Hobbies: working out, hiking, coffee shops and views!

SLCC Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement? A. State leaders recently granted Utah System of Higher Education institutions more flexibility in decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccination requirements for Spring semester 2022. The surge in cases due to the Delta variant has put a huge strain on Utah’s health care system, and the college can play an important role in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 by requiring students to get vaccinated. Q. Why are SLCC employees not subject to the vaccination requirement? A. The college is currently waiting for a legal review and authority to consider a vaccination requirement for SLCC employees. Updates will be provided as the college receives information on this matter. Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement rather than a mask mandate? A.

Vaccine requirement lifted for students, starting now

At more than two years since the start of the pandemic, we at SLCC are in the phase of navigating how we “learn to live” with the virus. With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continuing to decline locally, SLCC is opting to remove its vaccination requirement for students registering for classes from this point forward. You are no longer required to be vaccinated or declare an exemption to attend SLCC.   With the immediate lifting of this requirement, we still believe it important to continue tracking vaccinations, as it will help us measure the overall safety and wellbeing of our entire community across all locations. As such, students are encouraged to update the college on their vaccination status, though it is not required.   Vaccines and boosters are still the best available tools to protect against serious illness and death from COVID-19, so we encourage everyone to keep their vaccinations up-to-date per the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control .
